On a side note, do the still play that Jason Annear Memorial match?
That's a good question. I thought about him when I first heard of Keith's unexpected death as Jason's death was quite unexpected too.

For those who may have forgotten about or don't know about Jason Annear, here is a bit of a recap:

Jason Annear was a Central Coast junior who joined Manly at the age of 16 and spent his first four seasons rising through the S.G. Ball and Toyota Cup ranks.

Capable of playing back-row and five-eighth, he graduated to the NSW Cup in 2012 and was placed on standby to make his NRL debut twice throughout the 2012 season when he was named as 19th man.

He also supplemented his lower grade income working as a doorman at Manly Leagues Club at Brookvale.

Tragically, he fell to his death from the headland separating Queenscliff and Freshwater beaches just hours after the club's annual presentation dinner held at the Manly Pacific Hotel on Friday October 5, 2012. His body lay undiscovered at the base of the cliff until around 7pm the following Sunday evening when members of the public alerted Police. At the time of his discovery, he was found to be still wearing the suit he wore to the end-of-season event.

It is believed he fell early on the Saturday morning, possibly while en route to his Collaroy home.

He was only 21-year-old.

Although he never did actually get to play in First Grade for the Manly Club, in recognition of his immense potential and dedication to the club, Jason was added to the club's first grade registry, granting him an honorary place in Manly history as Manly Sea Eagles Player 543.

Jason's entry into the Sea Eagles record books represented the first time in the club's history that a player has been registered posthumously.

His family was later presented with a Sea Eagles playing jersey bearing his name and number.

Reserve Grader
Manly Sea Eagle # 623 - even though you are gone, you will not be forgotten because you will forever be part of the Sea Eagles Family.

Hope that Keith’s family can get some closure from the memorial service by the club and I know that they cherish our latest Sea Eagle, just like we will.

RIP and soar like an Eagle !!

Some lovely words by Saab. Very touching indeed... I hope his name is on all the 2021 jersey's, that would be a great move by the club imho.
